Walk Notes

A final wildcamp of 2016 in a spot I'd been wanting to pitch at for a while. Using the ruins of the old peat store at Blakethwaite Mill as shelter, we spent a good evening. Weather was not as good as forecast, with no sun at all, but also no wind or rain, which was nice. Felt the climb and lack of fitness made for a surprisingly tiring walk, despite the short length.
